27 Dec 2009 Our Open House

It was really great to have so many people over to our house recently for an Open House. So, what did we have?

Deviled Eggs

Veggie Tray with Green Garlic Dip

Meat Balls in Sweet and Sour Sauce

Idaho Deviled Blue Crab

“Flying Grandma” Punch

Skewered Tomato and Basil and Mozzarella

Fresh Made Lox with Cream Cheese

Pesto Stuffed Mushrooms

Artichokes Hearts Stuffed with Brie and Spinach

Sage Bread Sticks

Olive Tray

Homemade Chicken Liver Pâté

White Bean Dip

Fresh Baked Cookies

And the wines?

1979 Robin's Best Red Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley

1979 Robin's Best Red Petit Syrah

1978 Chalone Vineyard Estate Bottled Pinot Blanc

1978 Chalone Vineyard Estate Bottled Chardonnay

1971 Chateau Trotanoy Pomerol

1970 Chateau Clerc Milon Grand Cru Baron Philippe de Rothschild

None of this would have been possible without the help of Our Wine Cellar, Susan, to help straighten the house up, Marnie and Mac for their countless hours of helping to prep the food and run errands, Chris for making the punch (Did he try any?) and Mattie for keeping Chris “in line”. Many thanks to all of you. And Thanks too, to everyone who came. We certainly did enjoy your company! Be sure to look at the photos! Some photos are new .... some photos are old! Cheers! And Happy 2010! And yes, some of the recipes are available if you would like a copy. Just email me.
